  1. I had this problem, you need to format it into NTFS. Can't remember how I did it but you need to use thew CMD. Googling now to see if I can help.

    Try that, can't remember exactly but mine came in a format that my window 7 couldn't see :(

    Try this:
    Click on Start
    Click on Run
    Type diskmgmt.msc and press enter (this will take you to disk management)
    Look for the 1TB WD drive and see if it is unallocated.
    If it is then you can right click on the drive and then click on "New Simple Volume..." and follow the prompts to create a partition and format the drive.
  4. Thanks man, worked perfect
